* In ''Literature/The39Clues'', the Cahills have a downplayed version. Each branch of the family has a different special quality (Lucians are leaders and schemers, Ekatrina are genius scientists, Tomas are gifted athletes, and Janus are great artists) due to their ancestors (siblings Luke, Katherine, Thomas, and Jane Cahill) each taking one-fourth of a serum (meant to cure the bubonic plague) which gives the imbiber all of those qualities. [[spoiler: The fifth branch, the Madrigals, don't have any genetic special quality, since their ancestor Madeline Cahill was born after the serum's creator had died. They've still managed to produce [[TheUnchosenOne such luminaries]] as Deng Xiopeng, William Shakespeare, and the protagonists, Amy and Dan Cahill.]]

** Valeria is currently a super-genius; three years old already Reed-class. Franklin is currently depowered after the last time he pushed his omnipotence into overdrive. At his maximum, he is potentially one of the most powerful beings in the universe, to the point that characters who can make Galactus sit up and beg were afraid of him for a while. When he has powers, there's usually a RestrainingBolt (imposed by him or others depending on the timeline) on them that limits him to helpful but not god-tier psychic abilities.

* ''{{Pokemon}}'' has types 1 and 3. Baby Pokemon can inherit any move both their parents know, that they could get by LevelGrinding. They can also inherit [[PowersAsPrograms TM or HM]] moves, or certain moves that can only come from breeding, from their fathers. Thus, it's possible to have a level 1 baby slinging FrickinLaserBeams around.

* ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'': Part of what makes Samus Aran such a high achiever is the Chozo blood she was infused with as a young child.
** And, thanks to ''MetroidFusion'', she also has the [=DNA=] of a metroid. You know, those monsters that are pretty much invincible to all but ice. And classified as [=WMDs=].

* The Paralogue children from VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening inherit their parents skills via LamarckWasRight. Players often have certain characters paired up or have them change classes before the paralogue stage so their kids have inherited [[BadAss devastating]] abilities and very high stats they normally wouldn't get in their starting class or gender (such as giving male characters Galeforce). Speaking of which, most the kids (with a few exceptions) are also in the same starting / Base classes as their mothers...

*** Q are extradimensional EnergyBeings. The ones that look human are using AFormYouAreComfortableWith. It's hinted that Amanda's parents suppressed her powers (Q can supress the powers of other Q) and made her believe she was human. She had the powers all along, she just didn't realize it.

** It seems like that if a Force-Sensitive is cloned, the clones will themselves be Force-Sensitive, as shown with [[OutboundFlight Jorus C'baoth]] and [[Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy Joruus C'baoth]]. Though the clone's origins are mysterious enough that it is entirely possible Palpatine created and discarded dozens of C'baoth clones before getting one with the original's power. The clone also makes a [[EvilKnockoff clone of Luke]], but the Luke clone might not have been a Force user.

* Mostly {{averted}} in ''WebAnimation/RWBY''; as [[SoulPower Semblances]] are manifestations of a person's Aura and each person is unique in that sense, there's little chance that a parent will have the same Semblance as their children, assuming either generation even unlocked their Semblance. The [[BlueBlood Schnee]] family is distinctly noted as an exception with their [[InstantRunes glyphs]] being heredity.
